Gluten-Free Alternatives to Your Favourite Foods

Nutrition Advice
bread

Does it ever seem like the whole world is going gluten-free? You’re not imagining it – the number of people who are adapting a gluten-free lifestyle is increasing exponentially. And the reason is – most feel better without it! The top benefits I hear from clients include less bloat and gut issues, more energy, and finding fun alternatives to gluten-filled foods that are so much more nutritious.

Experimenting with a diet change to benefit your health is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. The great thing is there are so many new options (many of them natural, wholefoods) to replace that I guarantee you won’t miss the old!

Pasta

Love your creamy spaghetti at dinner? Try these instead:

  • Zoodles – zucchini noodles. Try my recipe!
  • Mung bean pasta
  • Black bean pasta
  • Brown rice pasta
  • Konjac noodles

All can be found at most health food stores or online. I jazz them up with homemade pesto, olive oil and rock salt. So delish.

Bread

There’s nothing like morning toast or a hearty slice of bread with warming soup. These options are satisfying and healthy.

  • My Signature GF Loaf – available in The Clean Life
  • The Life Changing Loaf – available in The Clean Life
  • My Vegetable Bread – available here!
  • Gluten-free Ezekiel bread
  • Brown rice cakes

Cereal

  • A quick breakfast option or topping for yoghurt – all gluten-free AND sugar-free.
  • Organic rolled oats (certified gluten-free)
  • Buckwheat/quinoa porridge
  • Homemade granola – many options here and in The Clean Life
  • Chia pudding – lots of delish recipes in The Clean Life

Crackers

  • Brown rice cakes
  • Flaxseed crackers – found at most health food stores or follow the recipe in The Clean Life
  • Flats – a delicious new veggie cracker I’ve found in Sydney health food stores

Pizza

  • Cauliflower pizza – my must make recipe here
  • Open egg omelette style – top with your favourite veggies, rocket and goat cheese
  • Gluten-free pizza crust – available at most health food stores

Condiments

So many condiments and sauces have hidden gluten, like soy sauce and ketchup. Instead, spice up your meals with tamari, olive oil, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, Mrs. Dash seasoning, rock salt, Dijon mustard and fresh herbs

TESTIMONIALS

Hi Jessica, I believe in synchronicity so when I was guided to you .on FB I was intrigued and inspired. I turned 46 last week and my husband bought me your book. I wanted to thank you for sharing your wisdom in such a beautifully presented way. My  copy is now filled with tabs and post it notes with actual notes throughout. I am dairy intolerant since having my gallbladder removed 15+ years ago, I don't eat meat, very minimal gluten and was told 12 months ago my gut was not digesting my food properly so I wasn't receiving sufficient nutrients and taking supplements would be a waste of time.  My weight fluctuates tending to gain rather than lose but now I believe I have a tool to help me bring my body back into balance that I need for my health and longevity of life - so again thank you. The first few steps to creating a stronger path forward for my health has found its foundation in your beautiful book, The Healthy Life.

With kindest regards Samantha

I'm writing this email because I wanted to tell you how much I love your blog and how you really helped me in my health journey. Thank you for sharing all your advices and experiences.

When I started my studies, I was drinking lots of coffee and I was eaten the wrong foods, and feel bad about it, I wasn't at my best. So I had done some research on the net but at first I didn't found advices that are for me, and then I found your blog. It was exactly what I was looking for, good advices and healthy recipes. Now I'm following your advices on rest more, and snacks between meals and prep the meals and take time for myself to reconnect with my body and let go my anxiety, etc, and I have a more balanced life and have a new relationship with food thanks to you.

I bought your book and it's honestly the best book I have ever bought. I suffer from IBS and anxiety. I have paid so much money seeing naturopaths however after reading your book and all of your tips I'm noticing so much of a difference, so simple and easy to follow. And symptoms have dramatically decreased. Also you have helped me to relax. Currently drinking the protein health smoothie! Thankyou your amazing.

Hey Jessica!
I haven’t yet brought ‘The Healthy Life’, but I do have the clean life and your slim down plan! I would like to thank you so much for the knowledge your share and the message you put across about health and wellness. I’m studying Nutritional Medicine in Melbourne and absolutely love the philosophy that you share with your JSHealth community. The work you’ve done to show people that leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t boring, tasteless, difficult or depriving is amazing and hope to share the message myself one day. You’ve inspired me to start my own blog , to share the message and have taught me so many things about my own health! You should be proud of your achievements! Thank you again

I searched for help and tips through the Internet and found Jessica Sepel. This is seriously not exaggerated, but she was the reason why I have dared myself to eat again, to have snacks in between, to nourish my body. I could slowly improve my negative thoughts about my body image and my stupid anxiety of gaining weight. Besides, The Cleanest Gut was awesome too! A huge thank you! Especially from my mum. Seriously, without you I wouldn’t be where I am now!

@mariashealthytaste

Congratulations on your new book! It looks absolutely gorgeous. I’ve been following you on Instagram for a few years and you’ve inspired me to slowly but surely eat healthier without giving myself a hard time when I don’t. It made me so happy (and weirdly proud) to see the Daily Mail article on The Healthy Life. I remember trying out your recipes before you even had your eBook out! I can’t wait to get my hands on the book. Keep up the great work.

– Sophie

Cooking in this way truly brought out the foodie in me and has instilled a huge passion for health and wellness! Life throws you hard and frustrating things sometimes but I truly believe that this is where we learn more about ourselves and what our passions in life are! Thank you for inspiring me on my journey to health and wellness!

I am a yoga teacher in Johannesburg and am thrilled to have bought your book today. I love making healthy, nutritious food for my family, friends and fellow yogis! Thank you for this book and your inspiration (had to share a pic of my book on my recipe stand in the kitchen).

– Helene

I bought your beautiful book during the week and told my bestie to go out and buy it also! I love love love it. It is the book I would give to my younger self if I could (I am 41 years old). Everything is just so sensible and informative and is definitely a book all teenagers should have. This should be a text book for girls becoming teens. I will love going back and re-reading it many many times and can't wait to make more of the recipes. Thank you Jess - you are an incredibly inspiring woman and you should feel so proud

Michelle Curtis
